Welcome To The USFS Big Prairie Ranger Station!
Nestled between the peaks of the Flathead National Forest Park, with the Flathead Alps to the east and
the Swan Range to the west lies the Big Prairie Ranger Station.
It was opened here around 1908 by the USFS and serves as a base for fire fighting and other forestry-related operations.
The station itself has a few wooden buildings, the endless wilderness surrounding it, and a runway built-in 1928, which is currently uncharted.
The elevation of the station is at approx. 4600 feet and the gras/turf runway is around 2000 feet long.
Recommended landing to the east and take-off to the west.
The nearest airport is Benchmark Airport (3U7) 15nm to the east, however,
the safest access is coming from the north along the Hungry Horse Reservoir following the Flathead River southbound.
On this route, the last charted landing site is USFS Meadow Creek (0S1) 22nm to the northwest.
The runway is rudimentarily maintained, in really soft conditions from fall to spring and there is no winter maintenance.
Bring enough fuel and food, the station lies far out.

The campfire I placed is apparently coming from an unknown 3rd party addon and will only be visible when the addon is installed.
Until I model my own or get hands-on a model I can include only people with said addon will see it.
The problem is that I don’t know which addon it is since the object is only labeled “campfire”.
